large cabinet - 17.5 x 9 x 8 cm


Selenite from Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/t946a.jpg] Selenite from Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/t946b.jpg] Selenite from Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/t946c.jpg] Selenite from Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/t946d.jpg] Selenite from Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/t946e.jpg]

The world's best, and certainly the largest, Selenite crystals are found at Naica. This double-terminated, transparent Selenite crystal is considered tiny for the mine, where crystal size is measured in feet, but it is perfectly sized for a collector. Complete and undamaged, recently released from an old collection. There is a good yellow phantom in the crystal on the left side.
